Food of the Gods & Traditional Cheeses of Greece
Episode 1, from Season 3
The ancient Greeks regarded cheese as the food of the gods. It’s no surprise, then, that Greece has the world’s highest per capita rate of cheese consumption. In this episode, Will travels to the rugged coast of northern Greece to learn how wooden barrels play an essential role in maturing traditional feta, and how Manouri, an ancient whey cheese, gets made. Then it’s time for some delicious hand-rolled filo pastry and homemade pita pies, followed by a trip to the largest Greek isle to sample some local cheese delicacies.
